Q. What’s a runoff? Plano citizens voted for candidates in four races on May 4 : Plano City Council Places 1, 3, 5 and 7. In two races, two winners emerged with a majority of votes: Maria Tu (Place 1) and Rick Grady (Place 3.) However, no candidates won a majority of votes in Places 5 and 7, so a runoff must take place between the top two candidates in each race.
Q. Can I vote if I didn’t vote May 4? Absolutely! This election is more important than ever because it will determine the future direction of the city of Plano.
Q. Which Places can I vote for? Both! Some City Council Places have residency requirements (i.e. candidates must reside in a specific part of Plano) but ALL citizens may vote in ALL races.
Q. Who should I vote for? That’s up to you, of course, but know that these two candidates have received the endorsements of the Plano Firefighters Association: incumbent Ron Kelley (Place 5) and Ann Bacchus (Place 7.) In addition, Ron was endorsed by the Dallas Morning News.
